The Seeds of Rural Resilience: A Summit on Community Food Sovereignty and Regenerative Agriculture

We invite all Rural Coalition members, farmers, ranchers, agency partners, and our friends working toward sustainable agriculture to explore how contemporary approaches to such challenges as climate change, sustainable livestock, local food, organic agriculture, fisheries, food safety, and drought intersect with holistic models emerging in rural communities around community food sovereignty and regenerative agriculture. Our Seeds of Rural Resilience Summit, hosted by the Town of Atrisco Land Grant, a traditional, selfgoverning farm and ranch community, will emphasize innovation, collaboration, and intergenerational knowledge transfer. We will explore how historical and traditional knowledge related to regenerative agricultural practices, especially acequia culture, land tenure, and conservation, relate to farm programs or could inform program adjustments and changes to secure more holistic and durable results.
